IOGP Pulse – November 2020

Welcome to Pulse

Reducing global greenhouse gas emissions is an effort that requires strong partnerships. This month’s Pulse takes a closer look at some of the Association’s collaborative initiatives to help its Members mitigate emissions. The Association’s role in a lower carbon future will also be a key element of the strategic review IOGP recently initiated, and which we cover in this edition as well. We also introduce a new infographic showcasing how big a role oil and gas play in our everyday life, even when not travelling and while working from home. We hope you will have a pleasant read.
